dividend policy. The data is used in this study is derived from the annual

Sri Lankan context Dewasiri and Banda, (2015) carried
out their study to investigate the relationship between dividend policy and
stock price volatility. Based on the Hausman test results, the cross-section
random effect model (CSREM) is performed in order to test the hypotheses. And
also The Granger causality test is employed in order to test the short-term
relation between dependent and explanatory variables. The sample consists of 93
cross sections (firms) for 10 years with 930 observations. The finding suggests
that there is a significant negative impact from dividend payout, a significant
positive impact from company size and no evidence of significant impact from
dividend yield on Share price volatility. Furthermore, there is no short-term impact
from dividend payout on Share price volatility and it showed a feedback exists
